As we enjoy Earth Day celebrations taking place around the world this week, we at Ocean Futures Society feel it is a golden opportunity to remind us all that the land and the sea are bound together in one Earth.

May we all honor our water planet on this special day with some of the following suggestions:

We are at the threshold of a new era of understanding. We can no longer indulge in being ignorant about the most pressing environmental issues and impacts threatening the health of our oceans. Time is of the essence and that time is now. We must stand up for the ocean. It’s time we do everything we can in our daily lives to ensure a healthy, productive water planet far into the future.

Happy Earth Day!
